New editions are released on the first day of March, June, September, and December. In early 2017, the journal launched an online news talk show, "Issues and Answers," with interviews and discussion panels of United States Department of Defense subject matter experts and outside academics. A key content item is an Interview with General John E. Hyten, Commander, USSTRATCOM. Nuclear Posture review and Missile Defense, Modernization, Arms Control are discussed. The Nuclear Posture Review is a process “to determine what the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. security strategy should be.” The first NPR of 2002 was the second of these quadrennial reviews of United States nuclear forces undertaken by the United States Department of Defense. The first took place in 1994. The final report is National Security Classified and submitted to the Congress of the United States. On January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump directed Secretary of Defense James Mattis to initiate a new Nuclear Posture Review (NPR). The President made clear that his first priority is to protect the United States, allies, and partners. He also emphasized both the long-term goal of eliminating nuclear weapons and the requirement that the United States have modern, flexible, and resilient nuclear capabilities that are safe and secure until such a time as nuclear weapons can prudently be eliminated from the world. Condition: Very good.
